I'm trying to solve the problem that the sliders on the investigator cards slide too much - if you bump the card they move. I'm looking at various solutions - magnetic markers, pegs, and one more that I think I remeber seeing on ebay - a plastic template that lays on top of the card. It's not on ebay now, and I could not find it on any of the 144 pages of pictures in the gallery. Anyone know where this plastic overlay is offered as a product?

Thank you.

Ordered as well. I came here to suggest laminating and using a dry erase marker, but these are awesome.

Thank you - I've asked if they can do a custom 5x7 order so that they match the cards. Hopefully they can. But ouch on the price.

What do you mean 5x7 to match the cards? You want them to fit over the entire card, not just the track section?

Since someone already linked the item you were looking for, I thought I'd link my pic of the ones I made just for fun.

Yes! I want to make a frame that the card will slide into, so the card and the overlay are a single unit. I've got something similar with magnetic strips behind the card, but the poles on the marker's magnet are fighting the poles on the magnetic tape on the back of the cards, making it hard to control the alignment. The clear plastic would solve this problem, provided it was the size of the investigator card.

I'm hoping when you get that all done you post a pic so I can see what setup you ended up with...
